Approach to learning:
Our approach to learning is based on well documented research in the field of Early Childhood Development that indicates that learning happens best for children when they are given the opportunity to actively explore their environment through learning centers, where there is a balance between teacher-directed and child-directed activities, and when instructional strategies are used that meet each individual child’s stage of development.
Our Developmental Objectives and Philosophy:
- To prepare children for the next stage in life by providing experiences that develop them educationally, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
- To provide the highest quality of care in a loving, supportive, safe environment
